Leaf and Knit

Assalamualaikum!

Well,Β  really, how long I have been away from my blog yea? but still, I would like to say thank you, to you who always hop by here.

I just wanted to share this pattern. Looks complicated to knit but yet, very easy πŸ™‚ I’ve been lingering on this pattern for quite long, not last week, not last month but since I learn to knit! and that was like 3-4 years ago. Oh Allah, why didn’t I start this at the first place? Huh! πŸ™‚

This pattern is written by Smariek. Somehow, I feel like I want to use the same stitch pattern for my next design. It’s already inside my head. I only need to start doing it and write it down soon. Perhaps, I’ll also include it in my first coming book insya Allah πŸ™‚

Knit 4 rows border.
Row 1 : B3, K2, P10, K2, P10, K2, B3
Row 2 : B3, P2, K6, /2, YO, K1, YO, P2, YO, K1, YO, 2\, K6, P2, B3
Row 3 : B3, K2, P10, K2, P10, K2, B3

Repeat Rows 1 through 8 three more times.

Work one more row : B3, K2, P10, K2, P10, K2, B3
Knit 4 rows border.
Bind off and weave in ends.

Notes:

B3 = 3 stitch side border of your choice (I used K3 for my border in both cloths above)

SSK = slip one stitch, slip another stitch, knit these two slipped stitches together

/2 = Right slanting (double) decrease as follows: SSK, then slip the NEXT stitch over the stitch just made by moving stitches from needle to needle. —– Viz. Slip 1 stitch. Slip another stitch. Knit these 2 (slipped) stitches together. Move this resulting stitch to the left needle. Now use the right needle to pass the NEXT stitch over it (the stitch you just moved to the left needle). Now slip the stitch back to the right needle. —– See below for further clarification & walk through if this still does not make sense.

2\ = Left slanting (double) decrease as follows: Slip 1 stitch, knit 2 stitches together, pass slipped stitch over. (This is exactly the same as the SK2TP notation I have used in my other patterns)

This is my first time encountered to these term, /2 and \2. It’s confusing at first, reading and understand won’t help much. You need to read and do it at the same time then it will make sense πŸ™‚ trust me!

By the way,

I would like to take this opportunity to inform our lovely customers that on 1 September 2014, we are officially moving to a new store, located in Central Plaza Kota Kinabalu, 2nd Floor πŸ™‚ Do drop by.

Sadly to say, we are no longer operate in Wisma Muis. Bye bye Muis. You will always be remembered in our heart :'( oh so sad!

Love,
Ery Yusof/ Ery EROGLU

The 31st of October..

Waa.. How long i haven’t been inside this blog, never notice that the time flies so fast! So true that the timeΒ  is really precious the more you grow older. So don’t waste your time on useless stuffs, okay? πŸ™‚

Today is 31st October, in some places people are celebrating the Halloween day, meanwhile for me and my family, it’s my sister’s birthday today πŸ™‚ Happy birthday I wish her. Still haven’t decide what should I give her for her birthday. Well.. let’s see πŸ™‚

This week will be the last week of school for 2013. And then, the students will enjoy the holiday for almost 2 months!! πŸ˜€ *happy*. Obviously, it’s the only chance I have to knit and crochet as much as I can. Yep, barely can wait! I got so much things to do, and may Allah swt make it easier for us, amin amin amin.. ya rabbal’alamin.

Nevertheless, regardless of how busy I am with school, i still have to knit and crochet whenever I can, and so, below are some of the projects I made so far for the passed few weeks:
PA301030 asAlright, lets go to the first picture, the pink cardigan is a request from my best colleague. So, i need to make sure it will be an extra special handmade :). This is not hers in fact, it is a gift for one of our colleague who is going to have a baby girl soon πŸ™‚ So sweet! May Allah swt bless her and her baby. This is a baby set, which, will be paired with a hat and booties (however, i still am thinking either it should be a pair of socks or booties).

The second picture is designed with ribbing and frankly speaking, I knit it with full of weird feelings! Oh yeah.. I’m not going to experience that again anymore and I’ll make sure it won’t happened again. However, still, at the end I am very happy with the result. The pattern comes along as I knit. For those who wanted to try this out, I am starting this hat with 128 cast on, seed stitch band, knit for few rows, and continue the body with 3knit 1 purl, and decrease every 32 stitch and so on.. πŸ™‚ easy , right? Well, have a try!

In the meantime, I need to consider about opening a knitting class during this holiday as I received so many request about this. I do apologize that I have to turn down all these request as I really have no time to open one when i’m working. Insya Allah, I will look through at my schedule to see if i’m able to do so πŸ™‚ and insya Allah, i’ll do my best to arrange a class soon.

Oh not to forget, we have new yarns in store, have you been notified? πŸ™‚ Alhamdulillah.. we have more on the way <3 Please keep checking on us. Also,

adftoday, another Economy Crochet Hooks have safely arrived but unfortunately they are all sold out. Insya Allah will post them tomorrow.Β  But but, don’t be sad ya, cause the available Economy Crochet Hook Set is coming soon at www.daknit.com. So check us out from time to time ya! πŸ˜€

7 January 2013 – :) Buku dan benang..

Assalamualaikum.. selamat malam, apa khabar semua? Saya doakan semoga tahun baru ini merupakan tahun yang lebih baik daripada tahun-tahun sebelumnya amin amin amin ya rabbal’alamin..Β  Pertama kali, saya ingin ucapkan terima kasih kerana anda masih sudi lagi bersinggah ke blog yang sudah pun bersawang ini.

2012 merupakan tahun yang mencabar dan memberikan kenangan manis buat saya πŸ™‚ Ini kerana pada tahun 2012 saya bergelar sebagai seorang ibu. Sangat bermakna buat saya, masyaAllah.. dan saya berdoa semoga Allah menjadikan saya, suami, anak-anak dan keluarga semuanya dikalangan orang-orang yang beriman.. amin, amin amin ya rabbal’alamin..

Saya inginΒ  berkongsi aktiviti terbaru.. apa lagi kalau bukan mengait πŸ™‚ yup.. mengait merupakan hobi yang sukar sekali dikikis.. duit pun terkikis olehnya hihihi.. tak adalah saya gurau aja πŸ™‚

Hari ni, benang yang saya beli dua hari lalu, telah pun sampai dengan selamatnya alhamdulillah. Sejujurnya, saya sudah begitu lama ingin merasa kait benang ni πŸ™‚ dan akhirnya, saya dapatkan juga 2 buku agar tidaklah kempunan merasa.. πŸ™‚ jom tengok gambar..

Caron Simply Soft.. oh ya memang lembut! Suami saya pun kata – soft – πŸ™‚ akhirnya merasa lah juga pegang benang ni.. warnanya pula mmg dah lama plan nak beli match seperti di gambar. insyaAllah akan cuba usahakan untuk di kait. Sayang benang kalau tak kait.. sebab itu, azam baru saya 2013, saya akan pastikan setiap benang yang dibeli akan digunakan sebaiknya… memang sayangggg sangat mau guna.. tetapi lagi sayang kalau tak kait πŸ™‚ kalau kait nampak lagi hasilnya kan ? xD

Yapp… semalam saya print banyak pattern.. especially yang purchased punya.. minta tolong husband -binding-kan. Dan memang puas hati πŸ™‚ Terima kasih canim!

Tabiat saya yang paaaling saya tidak suka ialah print dan simpan.. saya sangat suka print pattern.. apabila sudah dicetak, saya pasti akan simpan.. kemudian.. tidak lama selepas itu, bila nak cari semula.. entah ke mana perginya.. selalunya kertas-kertas ni akan hilang apabila saya mengemas rumah.

Maka azam baru 2013.. asal sahaja saya print, saya akan print banyak-banyak sekali dan akan terus bukukan.. Hihi.. husband ada belikan fail juga untuk simpan pattern-pattern yang telah dicetak.. saya tinggalkan di kedai untuk memudahkan pelanggan yang inginkan pattern.

Ini adalah di antara koleksi terbaru saya sepanjang 2012.. I love them all πŸ™‚ Ada banyak pattern-pattern yang mudah untuk di kait.. dan semua buku ini adalah buku crochet.

Benang lagi! πŸ™‚ Benang yang ditukar suka sama suka dengan kak Marlyna.. oh saya memang sukaaaa sangat dengan benang Uptown Universal.. sangat lembut.. ingat tak pada entri sebelum ni, saya pernah kongsikan gambar benang dari jenama yang sama?

Saya jatuh hati sangat-sangat dengan benang ni.. bila di kait, feelnya seakan-akan mengait benang Alize Sekerim Bebe Batik πŸ™‚Β  Setelah itu, saya mencari lagi di tempat yang selalu saya beli tetapi dah tak ada.. alhamdulillah akhirnya dapat juga even sebuku πŸ™‚ Yang Red Heart itu pun benang baby dan sangat lembut sekali.. kedua-dua jenis benang ini ialah benang USA. Saya masih memikirkan projek yang sesuai dikait menggunakan benang di atas..hihi tapi tahu tak anda? Kebanyakkan benang-benang import USA adalah benang Made in Turkey πŸ˜‰

Made in Turkey, and yes, I love Turkish Yarns so much <3 You should have a try too πŸ˜‰

Alhamdulillah.. selesai menulis blog hari ni.. mata saya pun dah tertutup separuh.. esok nak kerja.. jadi elok tidur awal sikit πŸ™‚

Oh ya.. sebelum saya mengundur diri.. agak terkejut melihat visitor hari ini.

wahh.. siapakah gerangan yang sudi melawat Da’Knit sehingga 2365 visits? hihihi.. Bot google kot πŸ˜›
Oklah..
Selamat malam semua.. semoga malam ni anda bermimpi yang indah, insyaAllah..
Apa-apa pun, thank you so much for dropping by…

May Allah swt bless us all..amin.

Coaster little coaster

Assalamualaikum.. how is everyone? Hope you are all doing good and fine πŸ™‚ Hope it is not late to wish everyone a happy weekend!

These days, I am kinda addicting again to crochet. Problem with me when I want to start making a new project is that I always spent lots of time searching patterns and skip the easy one (konon-konon nak challenge skill sendiri) Offf… but honestly, it is a tiring job! So don’t know how it starts, thoughts came to my mind, – why just don’t I do something easy and fun? No stress, no burden! – Or otherwise, I will just waste my time looking for patterns.. but in the end, not totally making it lol (do you have the same problem as me too? πŸ™‚ )

So while surfing around.. I found and easy cute simple pattern πŸ™‚ Then I said to myself.. ok ok.. let me try make it this time. Must hold yourself from searching more patterns, just stop and do this!!Β  No more looking around.. no more headache.. no more bluffing and pretending you will do it! AHH… Yay! Finally, I managed to control my “nafsu” and in the end, I feel very happy with the outcome πŸ™‚

Allah Allah.. why I just dont do this since loooongg before πŸ™ This is very easy, very cute, very simple coaster but yet, so sweet. Aaah…. again, another one..

Again! Did it in just 10-15 minutes.. very easy coaster πŸ˜€

Lesson I learnt, don’t just skip!

Actually, making something easy and fun also helps to boost up your spirit to continue mengait. The only thing you need to know is to play with colours. Even simple, but the way how you present your work is important! πŸ™‚

So, why don’t you all try to crochet a long with me? Make this pattern and show off your creativity!

So.. what you are waiting for? Come CAL (Crochet A Long) with me! πŸ˜€

May Allah swt bless us all.

Thank you for hopping by!

My swap, hubby pouch and sweet earflap hat :)

Made this with love for my hubby πŸ˜€ in just 1-hour break!

This little pouch i made for a swap with kak Fizan from Sew Addict πŸ™‚ I hope she will like it!

And a sweet hat for my lil sisterΒ using baby design yarn (available at www.daknit.com) hihi.. somehow i am in a crochet mood recently .. but perhaps soon going to knit something again πŸ™‚

Anyway.. that’s all for today!

Thank you for hopping by πŸ˜€

May Allah swt bless us all.
